I've just installed cura 15.01 on mac os x 10.10.2. I noticed the program recognizes the SD card but the icon that you would normally click to do a quick save to the SD doesn't do anything. Just wondering if it's just me. I can always use the save GCode function so it's not a huge deal. :-)

    Do you see the saved path at the bottom of Cura like you normally see?

    There was a change in this version that now save the gcode file in a sub-folder (on the sd card) if the stl file is under a given replication folder. That folder is defined in the preferences (File->Preferences->SD Card settings).

    Nothing happened when I clicked the button. I did change the path to my SD card and that seemed to work. The path was pointing to my user folder. So the path is set to a single instance of one of my SD cards. I'll have to try to figure out what this 'replication' means I guess.

    I'll have to check it out on mac. Maybe some bug on that side when the path is empty.

    Basically the replication base folder is there so you can structure content (stl, obj files...) on your disk from that folder (and sub-folder). Whatever you bring in Cura from that folder or sub-folders will also be saved at the same place on the sd card.

    Here is how it work: (windows path for the examples)

    Base path set in preferences:

    C:Userspm_dudeDocuments

    I then load this file in cura:

    C:Userspm_dudeDocumentsorders1234321case.stl

    When saving on the sd card (E: in my case)the folders will be created and the .gcode file will be saved at:

    E:orders1234321case.gcode

    If the stl was coming from anywhere outside from the base folder the gcode will be saved like before directly on the E:

    Same issue happens with me if no base folder is defined ahead of time. I'm not really into the replication idea for the files either, so that feature is kind of working against my traditional workflow at this point.

    Weird. On Mac as well?

    Yes, Yosemite 10.10.2

    However, if you define a base folder then it works fine. This just may turn into a support issue for new users and upgraders.

    Thanks I'll look it up. I made that change...

    It shouldnt trigger issues when not defined. Actually not defined should disable the feature.

    I just looked at it on my mac running version 10.9.3.

    As a new user the property gets added properly and the default path is set to /Users/<username>/ and If I remove the path it will save like it used to do.

    Did you guys use 15.01_RC10 or RC11 beta versions prior to using the 15.01 release?

    No, I didn't use either of the betas. I just upgraded from Cura 14.1 I think.

    The feature was added in 15.01.

    Do you still have the issue? If so can you post your output_log.txt?

    I have this issue as well. Before I simply popped in my SD card and pressed save, even had the option to eject once saved which was great.

    Now nothing!

    Mac Yosemite..

    I fixed mine by going into the preferences (File->Preferences->SD Card settings). and removing the file path completely so its blank, then it would save to SD card again...

    This is the workaround for now. I'll investigate this tomorrow, and hopefully have a fix for it very soon.

    Got an RC, which hopefully works around the issue:

    http://software.ultimaker.com/Cura_closed_beta/

    Can someone give it a quick spin?

    (Want to get this fixed ASAP, as this is a serious problem for users)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
